Clash and Smash - How to Mix and Match Materials
CLASH AND SMASH: HOW TO MIX AND MATCH MATERIALS
by: Kellie Rigney
Whether it’s for the neck or the wrist, mixing and smashing accessory materials together can give you a bold but girly stylistic edge.
When it comes to accessories we absolutely love to mix materials here at Zjoosh. It sits perfectly with our philosophy that it is possible to be both feminine and daring all at once.
The knack is in the art of the clash — focus on the mix, not the match! It’s about having the confidence to smash materials together to create your own unexpected but signature look.
A mix of resin, pearls, leather and metals make a perfect combination, particularly when it comes to wrist wear and necklaces (more is definitely more, girls). You can, for example, wear classic pearls alongside edgy leather cuffs to soften the look. Or you can layer and layer pieces together to add volume and interest. A heavily layered look creates a luxe voluminous look. We even love the cacophonous sound it makes when it all comes together!
Here are a few of our favourite Zjoosh products so you, too, can get the clash.

Stack these gorgeous light weight and affordable classics for a super luxe look. These pieces are our most popular ZJOOSH items right now. The crystal bracelet adds a dash of flash and works perfectly with almost any look
Pearl Bracelet Leather Wristwear
Pearls are always appropriate no matter what the occasion and pearl stretch bracelets make a classic elegant addition to our leather cuffs. The pearls balance out the edgier pieces from our leather collection bringing a feminine and girly charm to your look.
Go to Great Lengths: Chain & Long Pendant Necklaces
Fine chain necklaces worn close to the collar partner perfectly with longer pendants and chains. Mix lengths to create a really cool and unorthodox layered effect.
Impact Statement: Statement Necklaces + Long Fine Bead Necklaces
Statement necklaces are high impact pieces, saying it all very simply. One piece is usually all you need for a sharp directional look. For a softer 1920s-style approach (think Lady Mary from Downton Abbey), wear a selection of long fine strands. The crystal strands are lightweight and subtle but catch the light as you walk on by.
Dangerously Good Pants
These Dangerous To You coated cotton pants in navy, black and sand are the only pant we sell, and every staff member here owns at least one pair. Why? Well, for starters they’re stretchy and super comfortable with a zip at the back, but really we think they’re flattering on the figure. Versatile, too. Dress them down with a slouchy sweater and sneakers, or dress them up with a crisp white shirt and boots.
